The Importance of Being Earnest

The Skokie Park District presented a Thin Ice Ensemble Production of The Importance of Being Earnest this weekend. Always in the mood for a grand farce, I took in Saturday night’s performance.Skokie Park District

First performed in 1895, The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a farcical comedic play by Oscar Wilde. The production focuses on Jack and Algernon, who both pose as Ernest, to woo their loves and escape other social obligations. The chaos that ensues is worthy of a 1970s television sitcom.Skokie Park District

All of the characters are dragged into lies and explanations in and out of other lies. There’s no shame if you get confused in the tangled web the “bunburying” creates. Algernon defines bunburying as creating an elaborate deception which allows one to misbehave while appearing to be a solid person.Oscar Wilde

Thin Ice Theater Company is comprised of home-schooled students. Grade school, middle school and high school are the three age groups of performers. We were impressed by the performances of the young thespians.Skokie Park District

The Importance of Being Earnest was performed at Devonshire Playhouse, located inside the Devonshire Cultural Center, part of the Skokie Park District. Devonshire Playhouse hosts Devonshire dance productions and productions of Thin Ice Ensemble and E.D.G.E Theatre. While at the Devonshire Cultural Center, we checked out the beautiful artwork adorning the walls.

Cheval Blanc Paris Review

Since Cheval Blanc, an extraordinary, newly designed and refurbished 72-room hotel owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey, launched in September 2021, it has been the talk of the town. Le Tout-Paris remarks about its WOW factor … and the hard-to-get reservations for the 30 seats at Plenitude, the intimate, first-floor gastronomic outlet headed by chef Arnaud Donckele, who earned three Michelin stars at Cheval Blanc Saint Tropez. Reservations are also recommended for Limbar, the ground-floor bakery/café/tea shop/bar where we watched Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric preparing desserts and an absolute must-have for dinner at Le Tout-Paris, the 7th-floor, all-day brasserie. This brightly colored space, with its raised seating and Fauve-like floor tiles and the adjacent Milanese restaurant, Langosteria, both have access to terraces facing the Seine River, with amazing views encompassing Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower.
